Albany -- A manhunt is underway in Albany for a man who shot an on-duty APD officer.

According to APD Chief James Younger, Officer Tim Harvey attempted to stop a suspicious person on a bicycle in the 700 block of 8th Avenue around 3:00 Tuesday morning. The suspect attempted to flee the officer, and during a foot chase, turned and shot Officer Harvey in the abdomen below his bullet-proof vest.

Officer Harvey was transported to Phoebe-Putney Memorial Hospital where he is undergoing surgery. His condition at this time is unknown.

Law enforcement agencies from Albany and Dougherty County have been assisted on the ground by K-9 units from Lee County Corrections and in the air by Georgia State Patrol helicopters.

The suspect is described as a black man, between 5' 6 and 5' 8, with dreadlocks. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and black back pack.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Albany Police Department.

Officer Harvey is 27-years-old and has been with the APD since 2003.
